I made an inadvertent discovery today while trying different things to\nmake my progressive lenses work acceptably. On my last visit to the\noptician she adjusted the angle of the lenses (I believe called panto) so\nthat they were set more at an angle to the vertical. She did this by\nputting an arch in the arms of the frames and I am not too happy about the\nlook that gave them. In any event it seemed not to have much effect.\n\nToday I was playing around with positions of the glasses and discovered\nquite by accident that doing the reverse - making the lenses sit\nvertically by letting the temples of the frames slide down over my\nearlobes - my distant peripheral vision improved dramatically. The\nfuzziness I saw off-center almost completely disappeared. The only effect\nit had otherwise was that the bottoms of the lenses now sit well away from\nmy cheeks so it is possible to look under the lenses. Strange.
